Paul George brings his 360 windmill dunk to L.A.'s Drew League (Video)

In the midst of the summer's typical free agent frenzy — full of real signings but typified by the frenzy surrounding big-time moves — it can sometimes be necessary to get a taste of real basketball, no matter the quality of play. Thankfully, various pro-am leagues are here to help. While these games would never be mistaken for the NBA, a star-laden pickup game has its own merits. At the very least, they remind us of what can make the pro game so delightful.

This past weekend, Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George brought his talents to the Drew League, the premier pro-am in Los Angeles. George, a native of Palmdale in L.A. County, is a regular participant in the league every summer. But this time he showed off a special highlight:

If that 360 windmill looks familiar, then it's because George did the same thing this January for the Pacers. The Drew League version probably goes a little smoother, although neither tops Vince Carter's famous dunk contest entry. But that comparison's a little unfair, because VC's might be the prettiest dunk ever.

We're sure to see more highlights from summer leagues and pro-ams this month. Let's hope they can hold us until the fall.
